Sistagirls get to work

Categories: Job Seekers, Pirlangimpi

Mark Babui is one of three sistagirls working at the Pirlangimpi Women’s Centre, designing and making clothes for the community and visitors.

Initially the sistagirls focused on making clothes for the 2017 Sydney Mardi Gras. It was the first time they were able to showcase their unique Tiwi culture, glitz and glamour to the world.

Today, the sistagirls are part of the fabric of this close-knit women’s group. Mark takes the women out bush to collect dye, swim, and picnic together. He is very grateful for the support of the Women’s Centre: “They are really 100 percent supportive in the community at Garden Point.”
